Meitei r native citizen of Manipur and in 1949 when Manipur was unified in India then GOI promised that they will preserve their ethnicity

At 1949 Meitei were 64% in Manipur but now they have been reduced to less than 50%

So for that Meitei approached to Imphal high court to provide them reservation in ST catagory n court ruled in favour of them n asked govt to make a committee n give them reservation in ST

Naga n Kuki opposed this it will give right to Meitei to buy land in hill area though govt said rights of all tribes will be preserved.


Currently Meitei r mostly in Imphal vally that is 10% and Naga n Kuki dominates hill n villages
